On March 20, 2015, at age 6, sweet little Isabella O’Brien was diagnosed with stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma - a relatively rare type of cancer.
Her neighbor, 11 year old Ryan Tarapchack wanted to help but he didn't know how. One day, it dawned on him that he could help by giving a part of himself to Isabella's cause - he could run. He always enjoyed long distance running and 'now', he realized he would have a good reason to run. With the help of his mother, Ryan set up this gofundme page in the hopes of raising money and awareness.
So, for the next month, Ryan will be running for his friend and neighbor, Isabella. In the heat of summer, that's no easy task for an 11 year old boy. But Ryan isn't any 11 year old boy, and he is determined to help his friend.
Please donate today to help Isabella and to show a brave 11 year old boy that it's worth doing something nice ... just because.
